Hannover vs Wolfsburg
Hannover got overrun last weekend when the team visited Schalke in 3:1 loss. The game only got interesting in the second halftime and even though they were quite equal by chances, a defensive lineup of Hannover once again proved to be far away from the desired quality. With just one victory so far, they stand thrid from the bottom and with four points less than safely placed Nurnberg.
After a win away to Dusseldorf, Wolfsburg couldn't continue the momentum when they welcomed Dortmund and suffered narrow 1:0 defeat. The only goal came early for their visitors, while it should be said that the hosts were the ones who did more, but without a proper change in the result. No doubt that they wanna get back to positive ways, being now five points behind European positions.
Goalkeeper Esser (9/0) is doubtful for the hosts, as well as defensive midfielder Schwegler (8/00, midfielder Maina (4/0) and offensive players Fullkrug (9/2) and Asano (5/0). Visitors have midfielder Camacho (6/0) doubtful, also offensive Steffen (10/2) for now.
It looks like lack of pressure does well for Wolfsburg away from home till now and I expect more of the same again. Hannover knows how to attack, but their defensive lineup remains very vulnerable and that's where I expect the crucial edge for the visiting team.
